Heard Fresh with Fred Hersch
Fred Hersch, the acclaimed jazz pianist, composer and educator in spontanesous and informed encounters with some of the day's liveliest musicians. This program featured Bad Plus pianist Ethan Iverson and the violin virtuoso Midori. Fred played masterwork recordings and new pieces too, and asks "What do you hear?" The resulting conversation brought the listener not just "behind the scenes" but "between the ears" of some of our greatest musical artists. Hersch’s passion for a wide range of music came out in down-to-earth talk that puts musicians and listeners at ease.
